Sofia Vergara is flaunting a diamond on her ring finger -- but is she hearing wedding bells? On Tuesday, sources reported that Vergara's on-again boyfriend, Nick Loeb, had popped the question during her 40th birthday celebration in Mexico. Afterward, she was photographed wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring (see above). The logical conclusion is that she's engaged, right?
Guess again. According to E! News, the Modern Family star did indeed get a proposal from Loeb... and turned him down! And here's the weird part: Not only did the couple stay together, but Vergara then wore the ring that he used to propose to her. Isn't the deal that you only get the ring if you say "yes"? Are there other women going around collecting rings from rejected proposals? Our minds are blown.
Then again, Access Hollywood is reporting that Loeb himself has confirmed that he and Vergara are engaged. Talk about mixed messages!
Maybe we're the only ones who are confused, because by all accounts, Vergara and her would-be fiance had a great time in Mexico. On Tuesday night, Sofia's costars Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Sarah Hyland joined around 100 people who gathered to toast the actress's birthday at a beachside Mexican resort. And Loeb was by her side the whole time.
"They were very cute together," a source told E! News of the couple. "He was incredibly attentive to her and was focusing his attention on her for most of the night."
Vergara has been dating Loeb, a businessman, since 2010, though they have reportedly broken up twice (most recently, two months ago). The actress has one son, Manolo, from her brief first marriage, which took place in her native Colombia when she was 18.
